Inside the estate, we offer a large VILLA called COLONICA, that has been recently restored originating a villa made of 9 bedrooms (of which 5 double-bedrooms and 4 rooms that can be used as triple-, twin- or double-bedrooms), 10 bathrooms (each one with shower, bidet, wc, basin; one is suitable for handicapped people-Each bedrooms has its own en-suite bathroom plus there is an extra bathroom downstairs), 2 large living-diningrooms each one with fireplaces (made of stones) and TVs-sat, and each one with an equipped corner with all you need to cook; in addition, there is 1 large kitchen fully equipped with a 4 ring stove, fridge, freezer, dish-washer, microwave, moka (Italian Coffe-Maker), toaster and kettle.

The COLONICA has 3 private shady gardens equipped with BBQs, tables and chairs in order to relax or eat 'opem-air'.

At guests' disposal there are: private parking places; a laundry-room ; a swimmingpool 15x7,5 metres large; a foosbal. The rooms do not need air-conditiong because they are very fresh on Summer, due to the particular orientation/position of the house. However EACH BEDROOM is provided with a FAN in order to refresh your days and nights. ON GUESTS' request WE MAY RENT THEM AIR_CONDITIONING UNITS on Summer!

On request, each morning we may offer to guests fresh bread and pastries. On request, we may cook for you typical Tuscan dinners at about 25-35 Euros per person, including water and wine. We produce our own extra-virgin olive oil and other homemade products. WE also produce cosmetics made with extra-virgin-olive-oil!You are very welcome to join us to observe the olive and grape harvests in September, October and November, so that you may enjoy the real taste of Tuscany!

Enjoy at our villa the unique experience of a “GUIDED WINE AND OLIVE OIL TASTING” carried out by a CERTIFIED SOMMELIER and WINE CONNOISSEUR (who attended, among the best Italian and Tuscan Schools also the Wine Spectator School in New York)! Ask the reception for details and prices if you wish to enhance your “wine culture” while having a lot of fun !

We may also guide you to a private visit to the Montespertoli’s wine growers’ cooperative. A touristic guide/cicerone is also available upon request to tour the main Tuscan towns and cities. Pick-up and taxi service available as well upon request.

It is also possible to organize “Chianti Wine Tours” that may you give you also the chance to discover the Chianti region off from the most touristical tracks and make a true wine-excursion with visits to cellars and wine-tasting. A stop for lunch in a local trattoria on the route (a typical, informal restaurant) will top your experience (on high season we recommend to book the tours or ask for quotation and availability at least 20-30 days in advance)

For groups up to 32 persons or BIGGER (MAX CAPACITY is 38 PERSONS) we may also offer a smaller house suitable for up to 8 persons, called FIENILE, plus other rooms, few steps away from the COLONICA VILLA, contact us for details.

About Nicola Carafa

My name is Nicola Carafa (next to me is my mother Paola, a great cook that you may experience in case you'll like to have one of our Tuscan dinner served!). My family owned this farm since XIX Century. Last year I have decided to renovate the whole property and to fully dedicate myself to offer to guests the opportunity to taste the best of my region, Tuscany. I also dedicate myself to the production of wines and extra-virgin-olive-oil. I will be very happy to welcome you at PODERE LE RONDINI and share our Chianti culture with you! Thank you!

Nicola Carafa purchased this villa in 1800

Why Nicola Carafa chose Montespertoli

This was our family house since beginning of XIX Century.

What makes this villa unique

Cozy, romantic surroundings in the true Chianti hills. Quiet, charming, traditional but with all the comforts. Our family will be happy to welcome you and provide you will all the information and help to spend a wonderful holiday, tasting and visiting the best of Tuscany and Chianti!

PODERE LE RONDINI is a real Tuscan estate, the VILLA COLONICA has plenty of space for a large group as ours, of 20 people. Very large bedrooms, each one with its private (internal) bathroom. Nicola asked us how we liked to have each bedroom arranged (if with king-size bed, or 2 single beds, or some triple-bedrooms) and he did as requested. The Villa is very clean and tidy and has 3 kitchens. It was very comfortable. The outside is great: from the swimmingpool (VERY , VEYR LARGE) you can enjoy a wondeful view. Last but not least I have to mention Nicola and his family: he made everything and more to make us comfortable and to meet all our requests, always with a smile on his face. He is a very attentive owner and me and my family will come back here for sure. We have had many holidays in Tuscany , but PODERE LE RONDINI has been the best place ever! A true dream! Nicola can also set at guests' disposal air-co portable units that are keeping the Villa's interior at a good fresh temperature. THANK YOU NICOLA and FAMILY: you are the best!!!

Great stay with Nicola at Podere le Rondini

  • 5 of 5

I was there from NY with my daughter, together with 20 of our closest family from Norway. The Villa and Nicola exceed our expectations. It was great, clean, safe (gated) and very comfortable. The pool and patio between the houses were great places to spend time with the family.

Nicola was a very helpful and gracious host, always full of ideas for sightseeing or places to eat, or with provisions (wine and olive oil). We had Chefs recommended by Nicola which was awesome, and ordered lasagna for 20 from the local coop/supermarket. Overall a great experience, enjoyed by everyone from ages 1 to 60!

We hope to come back!

Great stay in Tuscany.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 17 in the big villa. The location is great, the villa is spotlessly clean, the pool is huge, and the grounds are beautiful. The villa is really set up as multiple units, so the downstairs area is a bit choppy, but we had plenty of room. Every bedroom is large and has its own bathroom. Nicola is a wonderful host. He makes the effort to be sure guests are taken care of.

There are 3 buildings for guests. The smaller villa is very close to the large villa. If you're planning outside dinners, it could be an issue for your neighbors. Also, we lucked out on cooler weather, but with no a/c in the bedrooms, it gets pretty warm during the day. We all slept with open windows, so it worked out ok.

Overall a great place at a very reasonable price, and a great host. Would definitely recommend.

Along with 6 other couples My husband and myself,stayed at Rondini for 8 days. It was glorious. From beginning to end our host Nicola was helpful and so friendly.

The location was perfect. All our rooms and kitchens were clean and cozy. We were served breakfast the first morning at Nicolas parents home. It was delicious. He then helped us to work out the places to visit and dine. The wine and olive oil that they produce is some of the best in the region. At the end of our stay we wrote down what all we were thankful to God for on this trip. We filled a page but the best one was "I am thankful for the breathtaking view each morning out my window"

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

A longtime dream of renting a villa in Tuscany came true this year, and Podere le Rondini exceeded everything we had hoped for! Our group of 13 included couples and grown children, who all convened at the villa after different travel itineraries throughout Europe. The location, just outside of Montespertoli was incredibly beautiful. The villa was charming, comfortable, immaculate, cozy, and inviting. Each spacious room had it's own bath, and also provided a quiet spot away from the others if needed. While it was too cool to swim while we were there, the villa has a very nice pool. Nicola, our host, could not have been more helpful! He assisted us with recommendations on day trips - Lucca, Pisa, Siena, Florence, as well as restaurants we would never have known about otherwise. He helped arrange transportation from Florence when part of our group had a later arrival. We enjoyed going into Montespertoli for groceries and treats! We had 2 evenings where a chef cooked for us at the villa, and we loved, loved, LOVED the wine from their vineyard! It was a magical week spent sightseeing and relaxing, and coming "home" to our villa everyday made it even better. All of us have done nothing but rave about our gracious host Nicola and the wonderful time at Podere le Rondini. We recommend it highly!
